Scenic Solutions from Dayton, Ohio had contacted Enhance a Colour to create the striking overhead sign for Wrestlemania for the last several years. Having worked on the project in the past, EaC was knowledgeable about the project and able to work in the tight timelines required.

The biggest challenge with acrylic prints is that traditionally they have to be mounted to a duratrans and that can result in wrinkling, bubbling and mounting issues. Additionally, duratrans have to be lit at all times in order to see the visual correctly. With Enhance a Colour’s print process neither of these problems are cause for concern.

Using 5 ft. x 10 ft. sheets of milk acrylic that were printed to the first surface, using 4 color + white + 4 color inks with what we call the “day night day” technique it offers the ability to have a vibrant, clear visual when the graphic is not backlit and retain the crisp lines of the visual when it is.

Using supplied autocad files the 20 panels for the graphic were CNC routed to their final size and shape and had countersunk holes placed for mounting to the steel structure. The 20 pieces arrived in time to be mounted and shipped for the first WWE RAW event to kick off Wrestlemania 2016.
